Your Brilliant Baby in Week 30: Finding Partially Hidden Objects
What your infant learns this week
Week 30 Brain Booster
Let’s say you’re at a restaurant waiting for your food. Take your fork and spoon and hide most of them under your napkin. Baby will be delighted to lift the napkin again and again—until your food arrives—to find the silverware underneath.
At home, hide yourself behind the sofa, but have your foot in Baby’s view. She’ll squeal and giggle as she tackles you. Games like these are baby-style fun, appropriate ways to engage your child in this important step to understanding the permanence of objects.
